Slavic statues, Bohemia, Moravia
Slavic Statues - we can find remarkable works of art in these territories dating all the way back to the Stone Age, for let us not forget the famous Willendorf Venus figurine or the statue of a bull from the Bull Rock Cave. The Celts, too, gifted the people of this land with their deft craftsmanship, as did the Slavs and other nations that passed through. We may assume that here, as in the lands of the Vikings, wood was the primary material used for sculptural work such as statues of the gods or mundane objects, but unfortunately, due to the nature of this material there are few works left for archaeologists to find. Bohemian and Moravian craftspeople honed their skills even during the Middle Ages, and we can enjoy their legacy of magnificent statues, bust portraits, decorative relief tiles and other luxurious goods.
